^thats pretty freakin sweet. P3s are one of my favorite bikes to dream about.

Had my first track session today, at Manchester Velodrome. It was a 'taster' session where you have a bike and a coach for an hour and get to know the basics of track riding.
When I first turned up there were two people stood at reception, Lizzie Armistead and Jason Kenny... Went through and saw the GB Women's pursuit team practicing changes which was cool.
My hour on the track was amazing! The hire bike was great (A Dolan aluminium) and fitted me perfectly. The track was awesome and my mate took some photos (I'll post tehse when I get them). It was also weird seeing the GB team milling around the centre of the track waiting for us to finish. Chris Hoy was doing pieces to camera whilst the rest of the team there (about 15 of them) chilled out.
When they started it was a sight to behold, Jamie Staff and Chris Hoy riding along, sat up, arms folded chatting whilst they warmed up. It was a motorpacing session and all the riders went in a perfect, uniform line. Very disciplined and accurate...
Sorry for posting this on this thread but hey-ho.
I have booked my next session already, I loved it! I'm lucky to only live 40 mins away from the velodrome :)

It was supposed to be set up as more of a points race/Madison bike, but I never raced it and I'll have a new bike next year when I do get to ride more.

IRO Angus
Custom blue Alpha Q fork
Dura-Ace cranks, rings, cogs
Izumi Model V chain
No-name stem and seatpost until I feel like upgrading
Mavic/Surly training wheels

Not it's pretty much my training bike. I'm able to ride at least 45 miles comfortably on it.

looks good.

Jamie Staff is a legend, he is massive in the legs hey? totally cool guy too. The power numbers he makes is amazing. He was world champion in the kilo at his only 2nd world cup event, or something crazy like that. I think his first ride in competition was a 1.03.

Yes you are very luckyto live 40 mins away from Manchester Velodrome.

About the same time for me from Dunc Gray in Sydney. I have 2 outdoor ones more or less on the way there too. :)

CK21 - Your 'training' bike would do for me!!

Woodduck, Staff has HHUUUUGGGGEEEEE calfs, Hoy is Quad King :)
Can't wait to spend more time there.

^ please tell me you put straps on those cages when you ride it, otherwise a very nice bike

womensecks 11-22-08 01:44 AM

i broke the straps on one side so i took em both off until i replaced em... i just had the pedals on for fitting, i normally have speedplays on em.

thanks!

They're top-tube protectors. Because track bikes have no cables, it's easier for the bars to spin around and dent or ding the top tube, so the protector goes right where the bar would norally hit.

Thanks! Yup, it's a CK headset. I'll probably update with a better quality pic soon...

mangpress 12-11-08 06:30 PM

that yama is now my desktop background.
that is the single best bike in this whole forum, hands down.

ZeroG 12-11-08 11:25 PM

Erytropoietin, really nice Guchi and stem!

Any particular reason why you went with the Aero instead of the Team?

right now this bike is modified for the street. i really love it, though i just acquired the san rensho frame & am not used to chrome. please don't comment on the grips.

andre nickatina 01-01-09 01:08 PM

My beef with grips like that has always been that you can accomplish the same thing way easier just by wrapping the whole bars with tape.

Nice bike though. Those are webbed lugs up front, yeah? Close up pics?
